Privacy Issue Case Hearing Delhi High Court rejects WhatsApp Facebook challenge Competition Commission of India

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has rejected a plea by Facebook and WhatsApp challenging the Competition Commission of India’s decision to investigate WhatsApp’s new privacy policy and refusing to grant them any relief in the matter. A single bench of Justice Naveen Chawla passed the order.

A single bench of Justice Naveen Chawla had on April 13 completed the hearing on two separate petitions filed by Facebook and WhatsApp. Justice Naveen Chawla had said that the decision of the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to investigate the company’s privacy policy was not an abuse of power but a concern for the privacy of consumers.

The Competition Commission of India had told the High Court that Facebook and WhatsApp were collecting large data related to people’s private lives and could be used commercially for advertising and other purposes. Therefore, the Competition Commission of India has decided to investigate the privacy policy. The decision was challenged by Facebook and WhatsApp on March 24.

He had earlier been struck down by the Supreme Court
Facebook and WhatsApp were also hit before the Supreme Court struck down the social media privacy policy. The Supreme Court had expressed displeasure over the adoption of different policies in Europe and India in terms of privacy policy. The apex court had also ordered Facebook and WhatsApp to state in writing that they do not read people’s messages. A petition was filed in the Supreme Court alleging that Facebook and WhatsApp, two social media platforms in Europe and India, have adopted different policies regarding privacy.
